POST NOTE: I am finally back from a month of non stop exploring across the ocean to Miami,Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Los Angeles. Traveling by car from Los Angeles on highway 101 to San Simeon, Monterey and San Francisco. Then leaving the warm winter Californian sun to fly back home to Crispy Nederland. Apart from a big jet lag, I got the bug the second day I was I am sick as a Hushpuppy. Hopefully with a bit of VIP TLC I should be up and about and back to my scrappy self...all going well.... by next week. xox
